A line Lace Band

Another experiment here. I added a band of Ol Shel lace to the bodice. The lace has to be hand stitched in place after the dress is complete. I need to work on the gauge a bit more so that I can get the correct length on the first casting, as it did not turn out the same length when I based my casting count on the bodice stitch count. It's not quite double, more like 1 and 3/4th. So, theoretically, if I multiply the bodice stitch count by 1.75 to calculate my lace band casting figure. There, problem solved. Next time I'll know better.
